Vancouver securities lawyer John Briner


"Did somebody say sue? I am willing to represent you, and while you are at it, I have some penny stocks you may be interested in!"
The Law Society of British Columbia has initiated a professional misconduct case against Vancouver securities lawyer John Briner, claiming that he misappropriated client money in 2013. The society says that he received $50,439 from a client, and improperly withdrew or authorized the withdrawal of at least some of the money. He also failed to record the money in his trust ledger, according to the society.
The allegations are contained in a citation the Law Society issued on July 18, 2014, against Mr. Briner. The one-page citation says little about the circumstances of the case, other than to accuse Mr. Briner of misappropriating client money. According to the society, Mr. Briner received $50,439 from a client named GK and, between Dec. 20, 2012, and Oct. 16, 2013, he misappropriated some or all of it. Contrary to Law Society rules, he did not record a trust ledger showing the receipt of the money or its subsequent dispersal, the citation states.


The Law Society has not stated what penalties it could seek for Mr. Briner. It has also not yet scheduled a hearing in the matter.

NOTE: It is this opinion that it is far more likely than not Mr. Briner forged Ms. Dalmy's signature multiple times to effect registration of these scamola companies.

On February 3, 2014, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) announced the filing of stop order proceedings against 20 purported mining companies for providing false information in their registration statements. Of the 20 registration statements, 18 were opined upon by the same attorney, Diane Dalmy, who is the subject of a pending SEC proceeding.
More than one year ago, Promotion Stock Secrets published a featured report in which it noted blazing red flags of fraud in the same 20 registration statements.

Promotion Stock Secrets noted that the business plans of the issuers were virtually identical and involving purported mining properties. The issuers had nominal or no revenues, nominal or no assets and limited cash on hand. They also shared common bad actors, including John Briner. The registration statements opined by Dalmy were filed within close proximity to one another; in several cases, on the same day. Promotion Stock Secrets pointed out 19 of the 20 issuers were formed on May 31, or June 1 of 2012 and; 16 filed registration statements during January 2013. The remaining 4 registrations were filed in November and December of 2012.
The 20 companies that are the subjects of the stop order proceedings are:
Braxton Resources Inc.
Bonanza Resources Corp.
Canyon Minerals Inc.
CBL Resources Inc.
Chum Mining Group Inc.
Clearpoint Resources Inc.
Coronation Mining Corp.
Eclipse Resources Inc.
Gaspard Mining Inc.
Gold Camp Explorations Inc.
Goldstream Mining Inc.
Jewel Explorations Inc.
Kingman River Resources Inc.
La Paz Mining Corp.
Lost Hills Mining Inc.
PRWC Energy Inc.
Seaview Resources Inc.
Stone Boat Mining Corp.
Tuba City Gold Corp.
Yuma Resources Inc.
